Thank you to Ellen Whitfield, East Dean Press and Netgalley for the review copy in exchange for an honest review. This does not change my opinion in anyway.

Release Date: September 3rd 2022
Tags: Sherlock Holmes | Classic Retelling | Christmas Time | Mystery
Christmas morning, 1901: Sherlock Holmes discovers that the wine in a bottle of French Beaune (intended as a gift for Dr. Watson) has been switched with sand, and he suspects it means threat to the newly crowned King of England. Or does it? With Dr. Watson’s help, he soon finds out…
The Case of the Disappearing Beaune is a very cute Sherlock Holmes retelling about those around him who care enough about him to set him up for a Christmas dinner.
The plot is obvious from the start. And as a Sherlock Holmes fan I would say that he wouldn’t have stepped into this one as badly as he did as the hints were a bit far-fetched for the big plot against the queen. But regardless it was a cute read to get you into the holiday spirit.
